Rosh Hashana is fast approaching and I have a few more holiday desserts I want to share. On Rosh Hashanah it is traditional to eat foods symbolic of our hopes for a good and prosperous new year.

This being California the farmers markets are open year round, but the baby growing in my belly has left me exhausted.

Heavenly Bakers: True Orange Genoise Cake

by Shoshana on February 8, 2010 · 5 comments

I have to admit that this week’s cake was not my favorite. I loved the Seville orange curd but the cake itself was a bit dry. Maybe I didn’t put enough of the syrup, but I think I would have liked it better as a three layer cake with two layers of the curd to […]
